    Patrick, I DEFINITELY give Josh Pastner an A+.

    He has brought an energy and passion to the job that the entire city of Memphis has responded to. He is humble, charismatic, accessible and enthusiastic.

    He hired an absolutely amazing coaching staff. Two of his assistants are being eyed by top 20 programs. How many 1st year head coaches have THAT happen?

    And, of course, he hauled in the No. 1 recruiting class in the country. Not many rookie head coaches can claim that distinction, either.

    Given how gutted the program was when Calipari left, I would not only say that this was the best possible hire, but I doubt any other potential coach could have matched the energy and optimism that Josh Pastner brought from the moment he was hired.
